The first meeting of the committee was held on the 23rd of April, 1898, when it was decided that the work undertaken by the members should be :--

(1) The formation of an album of photographs of local geological sections.

(2) To supply copies of such photographs to the British Association and the Yorkshire Naturalists' Union.

(3) To make a collection of lantern slides for the use of the Society.


That in accordance with this decision duplicate photographs of sections at Ketlleness and Blea Wyke on the Yorkshire Coast, North Ferriby Cliff on the Humber Shore, Hessle Gravels, and the Forest Bed in Chalk Lane, taken by Dr. Howlett and Mr. J. T. Dyson, had been forwarded to the British Association and the Yorkshire Naturalists' Union.


That the Society's Summer Excursions had as a rule been attended by the members of the Committee and that on these and other occasions photographs of sections in the neighbourhood of Filey, Holme on Spalding Moor, Market Weighton, South, Cave, Easington, Frodingham, and Market Rasen were obtained That lantern slides of these sections were made, and shewn to the members when the report of the Summer Excursions was read.


That the nucleus of a collection of slides had been formed, and it was hoped by constant additions to make up a series that would be valuable not only as records of sections of rocks subject to constant change, but also afford considerable aid to members in illustrating papers on subjects to which the slides refer.


W. S. PARRISH, Secretary.
